Going Green

Here we go.-again. This will be the eighth Super Bowl appearance for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the most among any other team in the NFL. We should just call them the Lord of the Rings with their six Super Bowl rings. Steeler Nation is everywhere and that “Here, we go…” song gets stuck in your head longer than “I whip my hair back and forth”. And just as one song ends you have to hear “Black and Yellow- Black and Yellow”. Music from Pittsburgh should be banned.

It’s this time of year when fans start to jump on the Steeler bandwagon and pretend that they’ve been a singing fan all season long. PLEASE STOP SINGING THAT DAMN SONG! It’s been stuck in my head for days and I would never cheer for Ben Roethlisberger.

The Rooney family is one of the most well known families in sports and they expect their players to win on and off the field. They are good people and give back to the city. However, one player who continues to lose off the field is a 6’5, wildebeest looking quarter back; Ben Roethlisberger. We all know if Ben sees a hole, he’ll make sure he gets it in- there’s not always a camera around but there’s a lot of people who would love to see Haloti Ngata break his nose again!

Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard to bet against the Steelers when Roethlisberger is in the pocket. He’s one of the toughest players in the league to sack, but he took his biggest hit when for the second time in less than a year he was accused of rape. He was never charged in either incident (cough.. money talks) but then Goodell sentenced him to four games on the bench. I hate to say it, but since the suspension he’s been on a straight path in his road to redemption and so far he’s leading his team the Super Bowl. (I just threw up in my mouth.)

So what happened to the J-E-T-S JETS? I was really hoping that Sexy Sanchez would show BigBen who the real leader on the field is, and then… he wiped a booger on backup QB Mark Brunell… really? So much for being sexy… And where did the real Rex go?

Rex Ryan changed his game plan the week before the AFC Championship match up with the Steelers. What? Rex has made the “it’s personal” comment and continued to stand by his team as the team that is going to win the Super Bowl. Talking tough throughout the entire season is part of the Jets game plan that was loaded with F-bombs and comedy that the media and viewers loved! Then, the week of the AFC Championship game we get a soft, over complementing and full of Pittsburgh praise Rex. Wes Welker must have really stumped his little toe with all those foot-bombs…

Here’s a bomb: You have to play four quarters to win in the NFL and to beat the Steelers, you better play your best four quarters. The Jets were a little too late in their 19 point run and shutting down BigBen in the second half.

I hope someone gave Sanchez a terrible towel to blow his nose… oh, wait. Don’t do that! Its bad luck and the AFC Championship game fell on the same as Myron Cope’s, the creator behind the terrible towel and best known for being the voice of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Birthday.

The Jets may have lost their chance to play for a Lombardi Trophy, but I will still be wearing green on Super Bowl Sunday.

This will be the Packers fifth trip to the Super Bowl, but for 51 of the players this will be their first Super Bowl appearance. And for the Cheese-Heads everywhere, they want the Championship belt to make an appearance in the end zone. Aaron Rodgers might be wearing an invisible Championship belt, but he is wearing the biggest cleats in the league. His entire career he has been in the shadow of Brett Favre. No player wants the pressure of replacing a legend, but with four more quarters- Rodgers could be Legendary.

Green Bay is a 2.5 point favor over Pittsburgh. Rodger That!
